I Was Wrong

I didn’t think Istanbul could get any more beautiful… but then came the tulips.

This morning, I visited Emirgan Park with some friends to see the tulips. The only thing I can say is that it was just lovely. All of the colors… so pretty. Plus the weather is just perfect this weekend. Not too hot, not too cold – just right.

Afterwards, I went on a bit of a walk and discovered Beşiktaş Bazaar. It’s a great market place for vegetables, spices and other things like clothing and some (fake) designer goods! I have a week off at the end of this month and I plan on exploring this city a little bit each day. There is so much to do and see. What a wonderful place.

Below are some photos of the tulips. I got a bit fancy with some filters… enjoy!

    I have never seen so many tulips! And I have never seen any with raggedy edges. What a beautiful sight.
